Mixed feelings... BUT let this be it
26 November 2013 | by See all my reviews

Honestly speaking, I did feel that this episode was a bit too rushed up and everyone was in a hurry to wrap up the RJ storyline. The only thing that irked me was the way RJ was revealed. You spend more more than 5 seasons, playing mind games, raising the level of the cases involving him, even introducing a fake RJ , and drop the ball right at the finish line.I expected him to show off his psychic skills in front of us, let loose that narcissist demon inside him(a flashback of him killing PJ's wife and child would have been the perfect icing on the cake), but, all we get is a few minutes of a man to man talk and a PJ chasing RJ , which would have suited in any other scenario, but doing that in this case was not so appealing. Needless to say this was the weakest of the 8 episodes in this season, leaving the viewers asking for a lot more. As for the rumors that this may not be the end of the RJ saga, I say, let it be. No point trying to force the issue any further. Even though, the ending was no where close to perfect, I say put in a few riveting episodes in this season with a story expanding over 5-6 episodes and then conclude the series.
